Please join the English and Creative Writing Department in congratulating Matthew Olzmann, Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing, on the publication of his new book, Constellation Route (Alice James Books, 2022).

From Publishers Weekly:

Conceived as the assembled contents of a mail carrier's pouch, the intimate and affecting third book by Olzmann (Contradictions in the Design) presents the poet as sender, receiver, and courier...In language at once direct and artful, Olzmann memorably explores the question of how one might speak across the gulfs dividing humankind.
